Exactly one month after bringing home our first pullets, the coop and run are finished! When they came home, we had barely started building. Two weeks later the coop was done and they moved out of our basement. Another two weeks and the run was done. This was a MUCH bigger project than anticipated and instead of taking a weekend, took 4 or 5 weekends, plus all the work I put in during the week while hubby was at work. I'm on maternity leave right now, so while the boy was napping I'd sneak outside and frantically do as much construction as possible. The finished product: Now, I know that poultry netting is not racoon-proof, but we don't have racoons here, so we should be okay. We let the ladies out today and they love it!
